AS promised last week, here’s another picture taken in the Thonock area in the 1940s.

It shows Sir Hickman Bacon’s car (nicknamed The Old Grey Mare).

The actual location is the drive up to Thonock Hall.

On the far right is Alec Needham and the small boy next to him is Roy Bucknall, who supplied the picture.

On the far left is Sid Martin and next to him is William Minnitt.

If you have any pictures of old Gainsborough and its people please bring them in to The Standard office in the Market Place and we will publish them in due course.
